Gul said, "The BJP and Congress have no right whatsoever to call the Aam Aadmi Party anarchist. The only examples of anarchy in the history of Indian democracy have been during the communal rights that have taken place under the questionable watch of the mainstream political parties, where till date justice eludes the victims."

Gul further added that, "It took our 49-day government to initiate an SIT to address the 1984 riots, which both the BJP and the Congress failed to do in 30 years."

Reiterating the AAP's stand, Gul said, "We are a secular party that will strive for national integration and uphold minority rights and interests."

Gul also advocated the need for review of the municipal bylaws which should be made more flexible while not threatening the inherent character of the city.

While interacting with the members of the Punjab and Haryana Bar Association in an informal setting, Gul said, "It was imperative that the issues affecting members of the Bar, including those of housing, adequate parking space and shuttle services between different courts and tribunals, must be addressed in a time-bound manner."

Gul added that, "Members of the Bar are the custodians of justice and must play a more proactive role in upholding the rule of law in these difficult times."

Gul ended her day by a yatra in Bajwara Market and Reri Market in Sector 22, followed by a yatra in Attawa and Sector 42. She also visited the night food street in Sector 14 late in the evening.
